King climbs from the De Vaul trailhead up to the end of the main ridge in the Irish Hills Open Space. It's fun ridden either up or down. The trail first traverses steep grassy hillsides, then ducks into some trees before gaining more grassy ground via two switchbacks. Just below the ridge, the trail changes character to Irish Hills rocks and continues up to a paved access road.
